UPDATE: you can watch me making my delicious Sugar Free Mug Cake on CBS Morning News, Click here to watch. For full CBS interview where we talk about health and healing click here. Do you believe it’s possible to make a 90 second sugar free/grain free mug cake that actually tastes GOOD? I didn’t think so until this week. I tried it three times prior to getting it right and I almost gave up. It had a rubbery consistency that when you tried to spoon it out it flopped right back down into the cup, the texture was actually pretty gross. But I kept at it, and now today I found myself using my pet peeve phrase which is “I’m so obsessed with ____ right now” (fill in the blank). In this case the “blank” is this chocolate mug cake, but I also know that I need to stop making it for awhile. I’m pretty sure that although it’s not unhealthy, (and actually has some health benefits) two mugs per day everyday is probably not ideal. I promised my son I would teach him how to make it tonight. He probably wants to learn himself in order to remove me from the equation, then he can have upwards of 3 of them a day and I won’t have to know about it. Stay tuned and we will video the lesson and show you just how easy and fast it is to over indulge – even on a good thing! Enjoy.

- 2 tbsp almond flour
- 1 tbsp tapioca flour
- 3 tbsp monk fruit
- 3 tbsp chocolate chips (I used Lily's chips sweetened with stevia to keep it sugar free)
- 2 tbsp grass fed butter OR ¼ very ripe avocado (if you use avocado add a bit more sea salt)
- 3 tbsp coconut milk
- 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 egg white
- ½ tsp chia seeds
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- dash of salt
- Melt butter and set aside.Or is using avocado instead of butter mash ¼ avocado and set aside. Mix all dry ingredients in your mug and stir well. Add remaining ingredients and stir well. Microwave for 90 seconds and enjoy! Note - this tastes even better topped with almond milk whipped cream and strawberries.
